ONLY FOR EXTREME CASES... VET MUST GIVE RX .
I have had several dogs that were given prednisone for various reasons. This requires a RX from your vet. Please be sure to follow the instructions carefully. This drug is great but MUST BE TAPERED OFF precisely as the vet orders. I have Lupus and take prednisone myself for 25 years... I am also a retired LPN.

Excellent Service & Fast Shipping!
Once the prescription was signed, the medication was shipped immediately. Very smooth and convenient, and I absolutely love the ability to chat live if I have any questions! They have always been so nice! Unfortunately, she wouldn't take the Prednisolone even when concealed in Pill Pockets and treats; it must be too bitter. The alternative is to revert back to Prednisone.

thank you petmeds
My cat has a serious lung problem. I couldn't find prenisolone locally the pharmacy said it was discontinued. I tried everywhere even the vet didn't have it. prednisone was not as effective and it started to have a negative effect on kitty. The vet said we had to have prednisolone because it has a better effect in cats. So thank you pet meds you helped my kitty get the proper meds when no one else could. .

Helped cats dry skin
I have two cats in my home and my American Longhair has had skin problems ever since she was a kitten. I just started buying these for her after the vet prescribed them for her skin and I must say, her skin is doing a lot better. Only downside from the med, is that my cat seemed to develop "cat acne" around her bottom lip but it's a small price to pay for the rest of her skin to be doing so good.

I use 5mg Prednisolone for my cat. Why does the Prednis Tab bottle say for use in dogs only? Can I give this to my cat?
ANSWERS (1)
Thank you for your question. Prednisolone can be used for both cats and dogs. It is a prescription medication which means your veterinarian determined this would an appropriate and safe medication for your furry friend. If you still have additional concerns we recommend consulting your DVM directly.

QUESTION
Whats the difference between the prednisolone and prednisone? (5mg tabs for cat)
ANSWERS (1)
There is little difference in the actual medication. In dogs, they would convert prednisone to prednisolone in the body, but cats are not able to do this so require prednisolone directly.

What is Prednisolone?

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid used to treat various inflammatory and allergy conditions as well as other diseases. It reduces swelling and inflammation which can reduce pain or decrease the possible joint damage that is caused by chronic inflammation. Prednisolone requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per tablet or available as an oral solution.

Note: Prednisolone Compound is also available.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • Treats a wide range of inflammatory and auto-immune conditions
  • Remedies swelling and itchy skin caused by allergies
  • Reduces redness, itching, and allergic reactions affecting the eyes

How does Prednisolone work?

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid, which suppresses the inflammatory response to a variety of agents. Prednisolone can also be used as an immunosuppressive drug for organ transplants and in cases of adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease).

Cautions:

Without first talking to your veterinarian, don't give your pet any over-the-counter or other prescription medications while giving Prednisolone. There are possible side effects, including insomnia, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, and fatigue. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease, heart disease, stomach ulcers, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, or any other medical conditions.

Brand Name:

PrednisTab (Vet-A-Mix)

Generic Name:

Prednisolone

What is the most important information I should know about Prednisolone?

Prednisolone is a prescription medication that is used in dogs and cats. Prednisolone is available as 5mg and 20mg scored tablets and an oral solution. The usual dose is determined based on the condition being treated and the pet's response to treatment. Prednisolone should not be stopped suddenly. There should be a gradual reduction in dosage before stopping. Prednisolone should be taken with food to lessen stomach upset.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Prednisolone to my pet?

Do not give Prednisolone to your pet if the pet has a serious bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. Prednisolone weakens a pet's immune response and its ability to fight infections. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney or liver disease, heart disease, stomach ulcers, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, or any other medical conditions. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.

How should Prednisolone be given?

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Do not give more or less than is prescribed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Keep plenty of water available for your pet. Prednisolone should be given with food. Store Prednisolone at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

What are the possible side effects of Prednisolone?

If any of the following serious side effects occur, stop giving Prednisolone and seek emergency veterinary medical attention: an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue or face; hives), increased blood pressure, or sudden weight gain. Other less serious side effects may occur. Continue giving Prednisolone and talk to your veterinarian if your pet experiences insomnia, nausea, vomiting or stomach upset, fatigue, muscle weakness or joint pain, problems with diabetes control, or increased hunger or thirst. Other side effects that occur rarely, usually with high doses of Prednisolone include thinning of the skin, cataracts, glaucoma, or behavior changes. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Prednisolone?

If you give one dose daily, give the missed dose as soon as remembered. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the missed dose and give only the regular daily dose. If you give more than one dose daily, either give the missed dose as soon as remembered, or give two doses the next dose time. If you give one dose every other day, give the missed dose as soon as remembered, then go back to the regular every other day schedule.

What happens if I overdose my pet on Prednisolone?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. A single large dose of Prednisolone is unlikely to cause symptoms or death. An overdose is more likely to occur due to large doses being taken over a period of time. Symptoms of overdose include weight gain, panting, increased thirst, hunger and urination, vomiting, diarrhea, and Cushing's syndrome.

What other drugs will affect Prednisolone?

Do not give any other over-the-counter or prescription medications, including herbal products, during treatment with Prednisolone without first talking to your veterinarian. Many other medications can interact with Prednisolone resulting in side effects or altered effectiveness.

Prednisolone Directions:

  • Prednisolone is a prescription corticosteroid that is used in dogs and cats to treat various conditions such as Addison's disease, inflammation from arthritis, allergies and certain autoimmune diseases.
  • Prednisolone reduces swelling and decreases a pet's ability to fight infections.
  • Give Prednisolone with food to lessen stomach upset.

Prednisolone should not be stopped suddenly. There should be a gradual reduction in dosage before stopping.
